Pesticides in Agriculture
Information Brief - June 2016
Increasing agricultural productivity among smallholder farmers is the objective of several agricultural and private sector development programmes supported by Sida. Protection of human health and the environment is also equally prioritized and must be taken into account. If programmes include access to and use of pesticides, an adequate system for assessing and managing risks for human health and the environment must be in place. The aim of this brief is to give guidance on management of Sida supported programmes where pesticides might be involved.
